Abstract : We have established a recognized plasma research program researching various interdisciplinary plasma research projects. We have conducted research on the development of DC RBD plasma system, 13.56 MHz RF DBD plasma system, laser induced breakdown plasma system, plasma shadowgraphy system and optical emission spectroscopy diagnostics, two color laser interferometry diagnostics. We have completed the re-design and optimization of the portable plasma jets. We have completed the testing and characterization and biological testing of the portable plasma jets and the optimization of the plasma jets were completed.
